about eaton? that company lowered expectations in part due to china. it is now up $4. someone asked jim cramer on twitter, accused me of hyping the stock by saying that i thought it would go up. and then there is peabody energy. it was recommended to buy coal stocks aggressively because of the chart. i have been and remain conservative. it could be crushed by president obama. china is the growth market for peabody. big coal company. closed $29.28. it's been a remarkable run. the weirdest rally is tech. we have seen so many disappointments in tech, we forget how much of tech goes into china. huge market. so let's just say it was enough to reverse the trend of all of those stocks. they moved higher. it was as if they reported better, not worse than expected earnings. china provided the change at the margin to make this rally happen. china, not the u.s., which everyone knows is okay, and europe is getting much worse. when you get a number that breaks the fall of a huge economy like the one we got from china i i read about in zucotti park this morning, it spells growth. that's what we got.

it in a situation like this, jim. i'm happy to report there was not any indication of any calls last night that people were thinking about their own pnl or business model. trying to make a decision that was right for all of the market participants. we ended up doing that. my bias is to keep markets open but this is a pretty easy decision from our point of view in the end. it's not worth putting people in danger. it's no time to be a hero. it's silly. >> what happened where initially there was a take it would open? when we were at goldman in 1985, the issue is there's no internet or real connection. we didn't have these things. we have internet and people who say we don't even need new york city anymore. how about the out of town guys who thought this was a great chance to trump new york? >> again, we got none of that from the other venues that are located outside of manhattan. there was no talk about them staying open. it goes back to what bob said. if a couple of the major markets are closed, i think you're doing everyone else a disservice if just a few thinly traded venues which would ev
. weather channel meteorologist jim cantore is here with us from ridgefield, new jersey, covering the storm. jim, how much do people have to worry next week? >> reporter: well, you can't let your guard down, it could come close enough to have impacts, it may not be huge but could slow the efforts here, these are the same computer models that we used for sandy, the one on the right is the american model, the one on the left, the european model. the one that nailed sandy's forecast as five days out, which is where we are with this storm. both of them developed the low pressure off the east coast and moved northeast, the american model is much farther east, less impact, but the european map shows coastal flooding at high tide, not to mention a chance of heavy rain. right now, brian, along with the cold front we dealt with, the temperatures are the coldest since sandy, dropping into the 30s, possibly the 20s since last night. and as you know, we still have a and as you know, we still have 3 million people without power, chilly nights. >> jim, we just voted we'll take the model on the right that
is in atlantic city now with more on that breaking news and recovery from the storm efforts. jim? >> reporter: hey there, jim. yeah, after a couple of days of controversy mayor bloomberg reversing his decision and canceling the marathon late today, making sure all the resources are focused on the recovery. you can see what's left of the boardwalk behind me in atlantic city. this is not the world famous boardwalk but another around this city. it's gone now. it's been wiped away. and others still trying to recover up and down the coast. heavy equipment helps to steer the difficult recovery. power lines are going back up. but many places are still overmatched by the devastation sandy left behind. >> this is well beyond what any of us ever imagined. >> reporter: the long road to recovery now literally lined with hundreds of thousands struggling to survive. the line stretched for blocks if you're lucky but more often for miles. people waiting in traffic or for a ride on the limited public transportation available. hundreds hanging out just to charge their phones. >> don't be difficult, ma'am. >> r
of the water that in the last go-around, hurricane irene came up to and over the lip of the seawall there, jim cantore has staked out the ground there. jim, we have been following your progress and that of the water lev levels all day. reporter: well, brian, the storm surge, the water rise, the level is 6.6, 2.2 higher than irene. so we're waiting for the high tide to come up. for example, irene was about here. all right? and what we could see is another two and a half, three feet here, major implications, if the water gets into the lower streets of manhattan, and also the subway system. and con-ed has the power to shut it down, and the mayor has to coordinate with the mta, the cross bay, the veteran's memorial bridge, the george washington bridge, just to name a few. they're huge bridges with massive traffic. and of course that was the only way to get around. it was either by car or cab. they were going to keep the bayonne, the 70 miles an hour wind gusts were anticipated to come up this evening through the midnight hour. now, they could choose to open it tomorrow if the winds die down, which

that means these folks took the storm seriously and evacuated before sandy hit. abc news producer jim debrill is in breezy point and joins us live on the phone. jim, tell me what's going on out there. >> you know, i'm in a community of 4,200 homes out here. this is a community that lost the most people during 9/11, firefighters and cops, during 9/11. this community was hit horribly tonight. around 6:30, they lost power. then the water came rushing in. and many here expected there would be flooding, there would be loss of power. but then this fire just erupted on one of the walks out here. and went from walk to walk to walk. we were in a home and the fire was literally right across from us. and as this fire just spread, we evacuated not once, we waded our way to another home, and then realized that the parking lot we were next to, the cars literally started to blow up in that parking lot. so we had to leave there, we went to another home. again, the fire continued to spread. my understanding, it has spread across about 12 blocks of breezy point. an area that they call the wedge. it's a place i

[ laughter ] >> don't say anything. >> let's talk about this storm and the effects on the campaign, the effect it had. were the campaigns pushed back very greatly, peter, let me start with you? >> i think it's in some ways it's tough on the president because he's missing three days, mitt romney missed about a day or so, not even that. and this is important to be out there to energize your troops, get them going, but, look, you know, politics takes a second stage in this kind of situation. the president did the right thing in even chris christie in new jersey, who he's touring with today, was very laudatory about the president. i don't think i can handicap this one way or the other who it would really help but it does take the campaign off the front pages for a few days, that's for sure. >> jim, we saw mitt romney in ohio yesterday helping storm damage victim, sort of blending the two, or did his campaign get put on hold? >> they're donating, instead of getting campaign know nation donations, the
